I have done many of these as a guide......wonderful experience, and all our guests have thoroughly enjoyed it and want to come back for more. That is why it is becoming so well booked up......this year all camps were sold.

Have you read the entrance permit? Do you KNOW the Conditions of Entry?

Completed over 8 years in Kruger in my caravan.

If you are interested, book as soon as possible. The weekends are selling like the proverbial hot cakes! A fully-booked 2018 is a probability.

Hello all
Coming from the states for our second trip to Kruger, this time we are booked to do the Napi and Bushman's Trails back to back Oct 14 -- 21st 2018
How crazy of a plan is this?
Any suggestions on Mosquito protection that time of year and any other thoughts or ideas ?
Our first trip to KNP two years ago was beyond amazing and so looking forward to returning
Thanks
See ya there

A very warm welcome grimesd :D

October will be very hot, so you will need mozzie and tick protection. I usually buy spray on 'Peaceful Sleep'. I find the smell less offensive than some other brands. The ticks can be a bigger problem than mozzies, so spray tummy and neck as well.

As far as medication, it would be best to get something from a travel doctor. If you use Doxycycline, you must make sure that you use extra sun protection. Doxycycline can make the skin more sensitive.

I think a back to back trail is :thumbs_up: . Although they might look fairly close on the map, they cover completely different eco zones.

I love the trails and would be quite happy to do back to back though the Park.
